Two weeks ago, Miss Colombia was humiliated on stage at the Miss Universe pageant when she was initially crowned the winner, and then told that host Steve Harvey had made a mistake in announcing the name.
And now, Ms Gutierrez has opened up about the moment she will never forget, talking to W Radio in Colombia.
“It was a very big injustice. It was humiliating for me and for all people in Latin America in the auditorium,” she said. “I have been disconnected, I haven’t received any phone calls, just a few people have been able to contact me and it is because I needed to grieve for what happened that night.
“It is been so hard for me. I had always dreamt about being Miss Universe. I dreamt to give that joy not only to my family but also to all Colombia, but I have to continue my life,” she said.
Miss Colombia also revealed that she is putting away her pageant heels forever.
“I wouldn’t be interested in participating in any other contest or be part of any event of Miss Universe,” she said. “I have already closed that episode of my life.”
